He entered the NBA draft in 1994 and was picked by the Dallas Mavericks as the second pick overall. He signed a six-year deal worth $30 million and generated terrific results in his first year with the Mavericks.

He spent five years with the Phoenix and made the All-Star Game three times; in 1998, 2000, and 2001.

During his first season, the American professional player led the Jets to the Eastern Conference title and its first appearance in the NBA finals. He continued to deliver outstanding performances as a point guard and assumed the leader's role for his young team members. Due to his hard work, Kidd was offered a contract extension of 6-years worth $103.6 million in 2003, which he accepted. He continued to play for the Jets till 2007 and was subsequently traded to Dallas Mavericks in 2008.

How Much Does Jason Kidd Earn As An NBA Coach?
Only a month after his retirement announcement, Jason was named the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets, where he replaced interim coach P. J. Carlesimo. He even bought a minority ownership share of the Nets from American artist Jay-Z in September 2013. Kidd's first few games as the head coach for the Nets generated disappointing results. Still, later in the season, he managed to showcase his coaching skills and even won the Eastern Conference Coach of the Month title in January and March 2014.
Even after ending the season with satisfying outcomes, Jason did not continue as the Nets' coach and went on to join Milwaukee Bucks in July 2014. Unlike his first year as a coach, the retired player managed to improve the Bucks' games and led his team to the playoffs. Kidd suffered from numerous setbacks during his time as the head coach for the Bucks and could not generate excellent results from his team. Because of this, Jason was fired from the team midway through the 2017-18 season.
The well-known NBA coach was then hired as the assistant coach under Frank Vogel by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2019. After signing the contract, Kidd became the highest-paid assistant coach in the NBA. The Lakers won the NBA championship in 2020, which was the first title for Jason during his coaching career.
While the details of his contracts with the Lakers is yet to be revealed, there is no doubt that Jason Kidd's net worth saw a considerable sum after accepting the offer. Just like his playing career, the well-known coach has also earned millions from his coaching career.
